The San Diego Padres made a number of roster moves today.
Lets start with the big ones.
1B/LF Kyle Blanks was called up.
DH/PH Cliff Floyd was placed on the 60 day DL which removes him from the 40 man roster.
SS Everth Cabrera was taken off the DL.
SS Josh Wilson was waived, and claimed by the Seattle Mariners.
C Nick Hundley was placed on the 15 day DL.
C Eliezer Alfonso was called up to replace Hundley.
AAA pitcher Arturo Lopez was waived to make room for Alfonso and was claimed by the New York Mets.
One more move will have to be made next week when Hairston is called up. Venable may be the one sent down unless a trade is made.
